FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. – The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a murder-suicide case that involves a father and his disabled daughter.

On Sunday, Jan. 8, a visiting home health aid discovered 58-year-old Jerry Frix and his 26-year-old daughter Megan Frix were found dead in their home.

Although authorities have not officially ruled the cause of death and reasons behind the incident, Sheriff Ron Freeman said the Major Crimes Unit Detectives have determined that the father was the likely actor in the deaths.

The loss of life is especially tragic as the adult daughter had special needs and had lost her mother just a few years before,” Freeman said. “There can be no justification for the loss of life, and we need to ensure that people know that they can reach out for help by calling 988 and be instantly connected to a crisis counselor.”
